A 葡萄酒CurmudgeonChristmas Carol

“More Mega Purple. … more. … and even more!”

cro’后现代葡萄酒圣诞节的卡罗尔(Carol)口中的味道很差

Marley was dead. And good riddance, thought cro. Marley had actually suggested making wine people could afford to drink, and marketing it to consumers who weren’t aging Baby Boomers. Who needs that? sneered cro.

不是他。在其中一本葡萄酒杂志编制的“最重要和最聪明的葡萄酒天才榜”上,他名列第九。

现在,如果他只能摆脱那该死的酿酒师Cratchit。她一直坚持在黑皮诺中只使用黑皮诺,并减少使用 超级紫色。她甚至在说话 为葡萄酒使用成分标签. Obviously, cro thought, she wasn’t a team player.

cro’s iPhone 11 beeped. The face of a woman appeared with the text. Spam, thought cro, and he deleted it. But the face popped up again.

“你认识我吗?”问脸。

cro deleted the text again, but the face was still there. He looked at it, and he remembered his early days at the winery. Man, they had made some great wine then, 像那些8.99美元的加利福尼亚田间混调。但是,重点是什么?酒的天堂’由于工作进展顺利,因此没有焦点小组会批准。

cro put the phone down, picked up the remote, turned 上 his 65-inch smart TV. Another face appeared, this time a man with a red beard. “Do you recognize me?” he asked.

cro改变了通道,但脸仍然在那里。然后它褪了色,Scrooge在酒庄里看到了Cratchit。她正在混合葡萄,Scrooge认出了她一直试图潜入的那些该死的Rhone品种。他想,我告诉她丢掉那些东西。她知道自己应该酿造梅洛,而且还知道它最好比一点甜。 因为女人不’t like dry red wine.

我想她没有’Scrooge想,当我告诉她我们只想要团队合作者时,不要相信我。如果你’不是团队合作者,您可以在其他地方找工作-即使是在圣诞节,甚至因为儿子蒂姆生病而需要医疗保险。

cro walked into the kitchen, past the Viking Tuscany range and opened the SubZero Pro refrigerator. He wanted a glass of that fake oak, 15 percent chardonnay that his marketing director said would sell like crazy.

第三张脸出现,戴着眼镜,帽子和留着胡须的胡须。 “我知道你认识我,”脸上说。

cro眨眨眼,然后他似乎在某种形式的家中,被其他几位古老的酿酒厂高管包围着。他们讲的是昔日的故事,当时普通百姓喝酒,他们笑着笑着几乎哭泣着幸福。

然后他回到自己的厨房里,在SubZero前面,那张胡须的脸还在那里:“好吗?”它问。

“I’m just 上e man,” cro said. “我们必须从某个地方开始” said the face. And cro nodded in agreement. Maybe those Rhone varietals were a good idea after all.

提示Curmudgeon的软呢帽 查尔斯·狄更斯,希望他能原谅我以他的葡萄酒主题为题材的自由。
